Are replit (technically google's) servers in Dearing, Kansas?

I was doing some research for badminton and I used a browser emulator to work around network restrictions.

I probably should have remembered that it's a browser emulator and it will have a different location than my own (I can easily fix), but on google maps, it said that I was in Dearing, Kansas.

Is this where google (because replit uses google) hosts their servers? The location shows it is on a road near a lake or other body of water, but also servers are also probably capable of geo-spoofing their location. If the latter is true, then why Dearing, Kansas?

My coordinates and "address" according to the browser emulator.

@novaflippers Yeah, usually data centers are too expensive to own for just one company like this, but I would get why data centers are kept private, but I don't think these are kept private (unless my hunch is right and they data spoof... but google is too good for that). AWS data centers are kept private, I think... but google reveals theirs (or at least from what I can tell with a hasty google search).
